Flood by AM
Originally uploaded by fotowarung.
Saban hari, laporan tentang musibah banjir di selatan Malaysia semakin menjadi-jadi. Jumlah mereka yang dipindahkan kerana tahap air yang semakin tinggi semakin bertambah. di sesetengah tempat, air semakin tinggi sehingga mencecah bumbung dan atap rumah. Malah, laporan juga ada mengatakan banjir ini adalah yang terburuk dalam 100 tahun. Itu saya tidak pasti. Namun, yang terburuk pernah saya alami, begitu juga pendapat ibu saya.

Laporan berkenaan peningkatan mereka yang maut sugguh memilukan. Takziah kepada keluarga mereka yang terlibat. Alhamdulillah, rumah kami di Masai, Sarang Buaya dan Ulu Tiram selamat. Laporan RTM mengatakan ada pencawang di Tiram rosak disebabkan tanah runtuh. Manakala terdapat juga rumah penduduk Kg. Sarang Buaya di mukim Sungai Balang yang perlu dipindahkan, terutama yang terletak disebelah darat.

Semoga musibah ini memberi kekuatan kepada yang terlibat. Insyallah

Urgent Appeal for Adik Mohd Syazwan Johari, 3 years old

No comments:
pick of the week I was reading dr bubble's ( a job well done) blog, and there is a pledge from him about 3 years old Adik Mohd Syazwan. He already lost his left eye due to retinablastoma. Syazwan was scheduled to fly to Wills Eye Hospital, Philadelphia for treatment. The trip was supposed to be funded by Ministry of Health Malaysia , Yayasan Kebajikan Negara and MAKNA but due to some 'hidden cost' ( additional USD28600 ) that was not mention earlier by the hospital, the trip was canceled. I am sad when I read it. As a father, I know it must be very difficult for the family. All I can do is, spread the word and hopefully, someone with the means to help him, will answer. Read more about it here and here. Here is adik Syazwan mother's account number;

Bank: Ambank,
A/C No. : 1260020004692,
Name: Nurul Sakinah Leong Abdullah

On another note, there is nope Karim Sulaiman.

Taken from Ahmad A Talib's blog,

Karim, a winner of the country's top journalism award (Anugerah Kajai) in 2000 when he served the Berita Harian, is also doing his own research on his sickness. Helped by his wife and children, Karim has been surfing the Net looking for any clue that could alleviate his suffering. In one instance, he found out that the health authorities in America has promised a reward for anyone who could find a cure to
the disease.


With the help of bloggers and fellow (x) journalists, his struggle is finally being heard. I hope he will be given the proper treatement that he deserved.

pick of the week I've decided to upgrade to the new Blogger and make some cosmetic changes.

The new version of Blogger in beta is dead!Long live the new version of Blogger!(P.S. The old version of Blogger is not dead, but it would like to retire for a little while... maybe go to Hawaii or play World of Warcraft all day? It begs you to let it play World of Warcraft all day.) - Blogger team

Kisan wartawan, akhbar & Implikasi Penggabungan NST-Utusan

No comments:
Saya dibesarkan dengan novel-novel menarik seperti 'Patah Sayap Terbang Jua' dan 'Tembok Tidak Tinggi' karya A Samad Ismail dan Hujan Pagi oleh A samad Said. Sebagai orang surat khabar, cerita mereka cukup pekat dengan tema kemerdekaan. Menulis bukan kerana wang. Cukup untuk tanggung keluarga dan diri sendiri tapi tidak sesekali untuk jual negara sendiri. Sesekali terpelosok ke penjara Changi. Masihkan begitu hari ini. Masa berlalu tetapi tugas wartawan masih sama. Untuk menulis. Melaporkan. Yang benar, pastinya. Menarik bila saya baca tulisan Kadir Jasin hari ini, dengan penghujungnya berbunyi,


Akhir sekali (dan mungkin yang terpenting) ialah hakikat bahawa sesiapa juga yang muncul sebagai “pemilik mutakhir” (ultimate owner) syarikat baru ini akan menjadi maharaja (emperor) dunia media massa Malaysia. Kuasa politik dan korporatnya “menakutkan”.

Berikut adalah sajak tulisan Usman Awang semasa mogok Utusan tahun 1961

Duri dan Api

Oleh: Usman Awang.
(Catatan pertama Pemogokan Utusan Melayu)

Kawan-kawanku yang dikasihi
semalam kita bertemu kembali memadu
ketika matari tersangkut di bumbung Utusan
kita tidak menerima apa yang ada
yang dinyanyikan dari hati berani
dengan tangan erat pada keyakinan terpahat.

Lagu kita telah mulai terpancar
ah, anak-anak manisnya menjenguk keluar
di luar udara basah dalam matari bersinar
semua antara kita lagunya seluruh sedar.

Apakah ini derita diri dalam mimpi
atau kenyataan pahit menjepit
pada lena yang membunuh kehidupan manusia
sama-sama kita rangkul menguji diri.

Kawan-kawanku yang dikasihi
di belakang duri di depan api
kita tidak bisa undur lagi
duri dan api, tajam panasnya kita hadapi.

Semalam dan hari ini kita diukir sejarah
di mana air mata tidak akan menitik tumpah
sebab kebulatan ikrar tak akan berubah
apa saja kita tidak akan menyerah.

1961

Kami sekeluarga singgah ke klinik malam tadi untuk jenguk adik yang semakin aktif. Posisi semakin menurun dan kepala sudah ke posisi yang menunjukkan hanya sedikit masa lagi kami akan berjumpa. Minggu ini atau depan? Insyallah.

Minimalist computer . For education & everyday use.

No comments:


pick of the week
Although computer are getting cheaper and widely use around the world, not everyone are privilage enough to own one, or at lease experience it. Here some great alternative for our education ministry or any NGO to consider, 2 cute and cheap alternative

Linutop is a very basic and minimalist approach to computer design ( you even have to buy your own screen and keyboard. No hard disc either) . It runs on AMD Geode and smacked with 512 Mb ROM, 256 Mb RAM and 4x USB 2.0 ports. It weight just 280 g (according to the website). Linutop is a Linux-based diskless computer and it main purpose is to surf the net. It a good effort. Not so original because Apple come with Mac Mini much earlier then this. But price-wise, Linutop will surely won, hands down.

One Laptop Per Children is the brainchild of Nicholas Negroponte and aims to give less fortunate childrens to experience computer as a tool for education.

The laptop was designed collaboratively by experts from both academia and industry, bringing to bear both extraordinary talent and many decades of collective field experience in every aspect of this non-profit humanitarian project. The result is a unique harmony of form and function; a flexible, ultra low-cost, power-efficient, responsive, and durable machine with which nations of the emerging world can leapfrog decades of development - immediately transforming the content and quality of their children's learning. - laptop.org


It already been shipped to several country and hopefully we will see one or two sets on Ebay soon. Got to get on of those!
